What originally caught my eye about this foundation is the packaging. It’s simply beautiful to me! Tall, sleek glass bottle with a glossy black cap with very little writing. It’s simple, yet attractive!
Although I didn’t read any reviews on this, I decided to pick this foundation up anyway because it looked so elegant. So how does it perform?
Check it out!
As I mentioned before, I really like the packaging! The downside? It doesn’t have a pump. Things may get a little messy and you might waste a bit of product.
The bottle appears solid and sturdy. I did a drop test from my bathroom counter and it held up pretty well! It also survived a 12 hour road trip to Atlanta stuffed in a small makeup bag packed under heavy luggage!
The Fit Me foundation comes in 18 numbered shades. The shades range from 110 (the lightest) to 355 (the darkest). I am 355 which is a deep golden shade with a bit of red undertone.
Here is a better look at the shade out of the bottle and blended out a little:
Maybelline did a nice job with this one! Fit Me feels lightweight and provides light to medium coverage.
I don’t really have blemishes but I think this formulation would do well alone for a natural look or with a bit of concealer for more coverage. My skin tone is a little uneven but Fit Me works that right out!
It leaves my dry, sensitive skin looking flawless! It also doesn’t break me out! I have been using it daily for about two weeks and I really like it! With a primer, this foundation lasts FOREVER. I can apply around 10 a.m., fall asleep in it (big no no!!) and still see loads of brown on my wash cloth or makeup remover towlette. That’s without using a setting spray or powder! Pretty impressive staying power!
It is has a slight powder scent. It’s very faint and wears off. The consistency is not too thick and definitely not watery. It applied very well with a flat top buffer and moist beauty blender.
Check out the finish!
In natural light:
The coverage may be too light for those with acne, scarring and blemishes but the coverage is perfect for me. I definitely think it could be built up without appearing cakey because of the lightweight formula.
I can’t really think of anything I don’t like about this foundation other than the shade range. Maybelline is only “fitting” a small range of beauties. I’m not very dark yet I’m the darkest shade in the line. I definitely think Maybelline should have went darker considering they carry other foundations in deeper shades. But if Maybelline happens to fit you I definitely recommend! It can be found around $14 or cheaper at most drugstores and Ulta.
